Coppertone (aka Scooby) is a kind, honest five year old jumper who has had a greatly successful first year showing in the USA. He is short coupled with massive scope in his stride which converts to speed by covering ground in the ring. He is also handy and brave making inside turns and winning options in the jump-off confidently. This five year old honestly does not seem like most other five year olds under tack; he is a horse with a lot of potential to develop into a 1.30m to 1.40m junior or amateur mount, and will be quite easy for a rider to bring along.
During WEF in Wellington, FL, Coppertone finished with MANY clear rounds earning him Reserve Circuit Champion in the Five Year Old Young Jumper division for 2018. He was also the ONLY double clear entry in the Gut Einhaus DJS Five Year Old Young Jumper Championship, with a jump-off time that was much faster than that of any other horses in the class, a true testament to his rideability and ability to compete with some of the top young horses in this country. Coppertone was the winner of the $10,000 Gut Einhaus DJS Five Year Old Young Jumper Championship (see video links for first round and jump off). Coppertone also competed successfully at the Deeridge Masters in the Five Year Old Classic Champions division where he was selected as one of the top 3 prospective athletes in the division, he also handled their grand prix field without spook or stress.
Coppertone's success in the Five Year Old Jumper division has also earned him an invite to compete in the Young Jumper Classes which will be held at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon in September. We have already accepted his position to compete, and if he is sold prior to WEG, his new owners will be able to attend and compete as part of this special opportunity.
Coppertone is successful and kind and would make an exceptional choice as a Jr./Am. horse or for a young professional looking for a good horse to develop. Please message me with any inquiries or to set up trials for this special horse.
